Our Salesian Family is a caring group of people from all walks of life and all corners of the earth who are dedicated to making life better for the world's poorest and neediest children and families.
We are led by nearly 30,000 missionaries including Salesian priests, brothers, sisters and novices who serve as Salesians of Don Bosco (S.D.B.), the second largest order in the Roman Catholic Church. We are joined by thousands of passionate volunteers, committed lay staff, and generous donors.
If you are already a member of the Salesian Family, we would like to thank you for your outstanding support of our mission and dedicate this website to you.
If you would like to become part of our family, we welcome you with open arms. There are a number of ways you can become involved and we invite you to learn more by contacting us.
